Lauryn Hill recently announced during a Detroit, Michigan show that she was pregnant with her sixth child. Now, Ms. Hill has addressed her pregnancy in an open letter to her fans.

“Coming back home after several months of extensive reconnecting with supporters and music lovers,” she wrote. “We thank you for your continued appreciation. The majority of these dates were planned in advance of me knowing about the continued growth of my family (wink, wink).” 

She also apologized to fans for showing up late to several dates on her North American tour. “There were some shows that we started late. We apologize and thank you for your patience. That said, I can’t wait to re-engage with you, and give you a musical experience worth coming back for. Let’s do it real soon.” 

The former Fugees member is currently scheduled to appear at this summer’s Rock the Bells festival, where she will perform her debut The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in its entirety.
